One Hour Wheat Bread


I love homemade bread but never make it because the process is too long. I just stick with many of my quick roll recipes. Not anymore! When I saw this recipe posted by Chelsea on Mmm…Cafe. I had to try it. Homemade wheat bread in an hour! Yes it is possible! Now it took me about 1 hour and 15 minutes, but that is still amazing. My bread took longer to raise in the oven. It took about 30 minutes. Other than that, everything went according to the recipe. This bread was easy and so delicious. I’m gonna be making bread more often, thanks to this fabulous recipe. Thanks Chelsea for sharing this recipe, I will now be a bread maker! Next time I’m gonna try to add 1Tbsp. dough enhancer and use honey instead of the sugar and see what that does. Love it! Love it! Love it!


One Hour Wheat Bread

Makes 2 (8×4 inch) loaves

3 c. whole wheat flour
1/3 c. gluten flour, sifted (or vital wheat gluten)
1 1/4 T. instant yeast (or quick-rising, I used SAF yeast)
2 1/2 c. very warm tap water
1 T. salt
1/3 c. oil
1/3 c. honey or 1/2 c. sugar (I used the sugar, but will try the honey next time)
1 1/4 T. bottled lemon juice
2 – 2 1/2 c. whole wheat flour
Mix together first three ingredients in mixer with a dough hook. Add water all at once and mix for 1 minute; cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Add salt, oil, honey or sugar and lemon juice and beat for 1 minute. Add last flour, 1 cup at a time, beating between each cup. Beat for about 6-10 minutes until dough pulls away from sides of the bowl. This makes a very soft dough. (For me, I ended up using 5 cups along with a couple tablespoons)
Preheat oven for 1 minute to lukewarm and turn off. Turn dough onto oiled counter top; divide, shape into loaves, place in oiled bread pans. Let rise in warm oven for 10-15 minutes (this took 30 minutes for me) until dough reaches top of pan. Do not remove bread from oven; turn oven to 350 degrees F and bake for 30 minutes (that is 30 minutes from the time you turn the oven on). Remove from pans and cool on racks.

  • That looks very similar to my recipe, but mine calls for potato flakes instead of gluten. Mine takes about 75 minutes, too. Yours looks yummy!

  • I don’t know too much about flour, so is glutten flour very different than normal flour? I REALLY want to try this recipe! So, would it be ok to use just whole wheat flour instead of the glutten one? Thanks!

  • Wow – love warm bread from the oven but never have the time to make it. Plus, it is hard to find a recipe for a good whole wheat bread.
